Digest-Tonic provides a broad spectrum range of plant derived digestive enzymes to help maintain digestive function & the intestinal system. This latest formula now contains culinary herbs well known in their food digestion actions, while Ginger and Peppermint help to soothe the gut lining.
The capsules used in Digest-Tonic are an innovative hypromellose (HPMC) formulation specifically designed to ensure optimal delivery for acid-sensitive ingredients such as digestive enzymes. Using plant based ingredients, our targeted release Digest-Tonic capsules provide built in acid resistance without the need for film coatings. This ensures delayed stability of the digestive enzymes and improves absorption without exposure to solvents used in enteric coating.
Food is made up of different elements, for example proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals. These different elements often need different enzymes to break them down into their separate constituent parts.
Digestion can begin even before we put food into our mouths. Just the sight or smell of food can trigger enzymatic activity, in anticipation of the food we are going to consume.
Once digested, the body can absorb the nutrients and move them around the body through the bloodstream, delivering them to the various organs and cells that need them.
The digestion process is very complicated and can easily be disrupted by a number of factors, such as the use of medication (and particularly antibiotics), a poor diet that is high in sugar, fat and/or refined carbohydrates, poor health, travel and stress. In the same way, some foods (especially fats and proteins e.g. cheese, eggs, red meats and beans) can be hard to digest.
With all of these internal and external factors sometimes your gut may need a little help to support it in the work that it has to do. Digest-tonic provides a targeted range of digestive enzymes to support digestive process and to help maintain healthy digestive function.
